I work for a company where internal transfers are normal. I've been on my team for 2 years and a few months ago I started to look for a new one only because I felt bored and wanted to see something new.
At that time I couldn't find anything but now a manager has reached out to me saying that he has a spot.
The problem now for me is two-fold:
- I'm less bored now at work
- I am going through some personal issues that cause me stress and I'm not sure I want to undergo the extra stress from changing teams right now. I've already made arrangements for therapy but this might take a while.
So the question is, what is the best course of action here? I am thinking of being honest with this new manager so as to keep the door open but I would like to hear more opinions.
